We are going to switch gears and turn the attention to food for the next 10 days (while I enjoy some crazyness in Queenstown, New Zealand). If your bummed out and would rather enjoy some sweat and tear inspiring fitness, follow through Week 1 or Week 2 of my body fit check.
As an intro, in a recent conversation, my mom forcefully exclaimed with the utmost fury, “If I can’t eat bread, rice, pasta or grains then I starve.”
She said these words with such distain that I trembled in fear, for if she did not eat bread, rice, pasta or grains she would starve. I do not want my mom to starve. I want her (and my paps) to thrive not just survive. So I set out taking photographs of the foods I eat. For I do not partake in poisoning my body with grains, grains are boring, dull bits of dirt – or something like that.
So here it is a brief glimpse into my eatings. Let’s get you eating right.
I hereby give you the permission to eat any of the meals I present at any time of the day. Eat salads for breakfast, eat steaks at lunch, eat typical brekkies for dinner. Do it! I dare you.
To start off I would like to show off my bacon salad combo. Damn, it is a tasty treat in the afternoon, morning and night. Working close to home, I often nip home for a quickie lunch and this one is a snap, chucked in a container and I am out the door in 10 minutes.
It is healthy because it is loaded with greens, yellows, oranges, reds and whatever else you have. The bacon adds some delicious protein and fat. The almonds some nice crunch and flavour. Man o man when you drizzle balsamic vinegar, crack some pepper and pinch some cayenne pepper your mouth will be salivating with delight.
Have a look:
half an avocado
sun dried tomatoe
extra virgin olive oil
Chop and wash the veggies while cooking the bacon. Chuck it all into a 2L tupperware container to take with you on the go.
